Newport 0-1 Sholing
A 52nd minute goal from Marv McLean saw the Boatmen deservedly pick up all three points on the Isle of Wight. Several chances were spurned in a first half that Sholing edged, with Dan Mason having 3 in the space of a minute. The breakthrough came when Lee Wort's shot spun into the path of the arriving Marv McLean who finished from inside the 6 yard box. Wort then hit the bar and despite soaking up some late pressure, the home side couldn't work Gosney as we move back up to the 3rd in the League - Match Report
Sholing 3-0 Petersfield Town
Boatmen had to be patient to break down a stubborn Petersfield side in a one-sided game, but did enough in the second half to progress into the Quarter Finals of the League Cup (where we will travel to Newport). After a host of chances were spurned, the breakthrough finally came on 67 mins when Kev Brewster's right sided freekick evaded everyone in the box and nestled in the net. On 73 mins, Marv Mclean scored with a low right foot shot that left the keeper flat footed. 2 minutes later, Marv was tripped in the area, and Brewy scored from the spot - Match Report & Video
Sholing 0-1 Blackfield & Langley
Boatmen went out of the Vase in a poor game that was settled by a 25 yard shot by Robinson, 2 minutes into added time in the first half. Sholing struggled to create all match, only coming close in the second half when Barry Mason's shot hit the inside of the post and stayed out. A scrappy stop start second half suited the visitors and there was to be no late heroics by Sholing as we crash out the competition - Match Report & Photos
Shaftesbury 1-1 Sholing
Boatmen were denied all three points by a 30 yard screamer by the home team with 7 minutes to go. It was pretty much Shaftesbury's only shot on target in the entire match, but Sholing can reflect on missed chances as we failed to kill the game off after Owen Roundell had scored on 52 mins. He scooped an effort into the far top corner after the ball fell to him from a scramble after a corner. We extend our unbeaten run to 16 games, but this felt like 2 points dropped today - Match Report
U18's go out of FA Youth Cup
Sadly, our U18's lost 5-0 at Leyton Orient tonight. Most the goals came after we were reduced to 10 men in the second half, when James Johnson was Red carded. However, the lads have done amazing to get this far in the competition, created history and done the club proud - Match Reaction & Photos
Brockenhurst 2-2 (2-3 Pens) Sholing
With 9 minutes to go, Sholing looked dead & buried, 2-0 down and going out of the Soton Senior Cup, but a few minutes later, the game ended 2-2 and then Sholing won the penalty shootout! A remarkable turnaround, in a game, where in all honesty, we did not play well. Brock took the lead on 28 mins, when Byron headed a freekick past Gosney for an own goal. Home side doubled their lead on 62 mins with McCarthy-Gardiner finishing off an excellent move. Sholing were creating nothing, but on 81 minutes we had some hope when, Dan Mason, for the 2nd game running, scored an overhead kick. 2 mins into stoppage time Byron's header was cleared off the line, but it fell for Barry Mason to nod inside the post. Game went straight to penalties and Ryan Gosney pulled off 3 superb saves, with Brewy, Roundell & Barry scoring our spot kicks. We are now at home to Hamble Club in the Quarters - Match Report
